    Haha yeah, Im a guitarist, not a drummer. Though the new place ive moved into recently has a nice electric Alesis kit that I can learn on, and I am getting on quite nicely with it now (luckily, the owner is also left handed so its beein set up properly! )

    Unfortunately I havent got any vintage stuff though my university did have some nice old Marshall valve amps i wishI had got a pic of.

    My bad . . . I'll leave to you to decide whether I insulted you, or them . . . or both.

    Don't know why I had it my head that you were a drummer too.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    You mean it's been set up back to front
    Good that your playing though, those kits aren't bad.
    @Groovetube. Cool that you got to play on the RS kit, and nice to hear you were in a well recieved band too, not easy to gte much recognition these days.
    Oh btw, I don't own any vintage stuff either. I do have a picture of me with my original kit that I learned on though. An old 1970's Pearl. I will dig it out later.

    Hey, cool. I used a 1970s pearl kit that I just loved for rehearsals a couple yeas ago, a real gem, blue sparkle, 24 14 18! The sizes were awesome, and offered to buy the kit. He wouldn't sell, and I was willing to pay a good price, they were maple shells too. I wish I owned that kit.

    I've been pretty lucky in music, I spent many years living on the road, I was in a band that did well stateside in the mid 90s, and was a for hire guy for a long time after, and got a chance to play with some bands I was a fan of years ago. Now I run a web development/design shop here in Toronto, but still go out and make records and do some touring, just not all year, that's a young man's game...

    I love vintage kits more than anything, a while ago I borrowed a kit from a guy in another band I knew for a record, (he was nice enough to let me!) a gold sparkle 1965 ludwig gold badge. I have a shot of me doing a track on them somewhere. It's in the category, of 'I wish I owned these'....

    The kit that got away, I missed out on a few years back, was a green sparkle set of leedys, 24 14 16 18. drat. they were 800 bucks too.

    Ok, as promised, the only picture I have of my original Pearl kit, not a great pic sadly. I was 15 or so here (hence the typical picture on the wall), and don't knock the "fashion" it was the 70's.
    Anyway, sizes were 12, 14, 16 toms, 24 kick. The cymbals were cheapo Olympics and Hama's. I had a Premier 252 pedal though, my pride and joy it was, saved for ages for it.
    The kit was second hand, but I remember it cost 400 at the time with no hardware, which is an awful lot cosidering what 400 will buy you now. I do also remember that they were a 7 ply shell, but can't remember what wood. Nice steel Snare too (a 5.5").
    I wish I'd kept it, but I gave up playing for 27 years.

    ha, that's awesome, the boob, the threads, and the old pearl kit.

    I think that looks just like the pearl kit we had in highschool. Forst school I went to had a black oyster pearl set of capri's.

    LOVE plexis. First time I heard one, didn't know what it was (such a drummer), in the white the guy had one, and I was blown away how after 2 hours of the set, his amp suddenly sounded like 3. I thought he turned it way up or biamped or something.

    i have a vintage fender bandmaster amp in my basement, but it needs some $400 repair work done, so it has to wait a little longer till it can blast some nice sounds again

    What all is wrong with the Bandmaster? $400 sounds like a lot, but I know good tubes are quite expensive these days. I used to repair Fender and Marshall amps for a living and still fix the occasional Fender amp.
